Back From The North JYV-HEL-VIE Pics/Vids

Thu Apr 24, 2008 11:14 am

Hi all,

Thanks for looking into my trip report which is the follow up to the first part of my last trip to northern Europe. http://www.airliners.net/aviation-fo...ums/trip_reports/read.main/122420/

After arriving and staying at TOS for some time I headed down south via Finland.

Since this is continued from the first part the aviation pics will be seen later so please scroll down as the first pictures are taken on the country side in the wild north and middle of Finland. Big grin


From TOS it is about an 2 hours ride to the Finish Border which was quite a nice ride but I fell asleep so the first pic came only after reaching the border shortly before Kilpisjaervi:

After a while we noticed that the windows started freezing from the inside:

Thank you for reading this Tripreport and I hope you enjoyed it.  Smile

I can´t wait to get back again in June for another week of fishing (and maybe hunting) this time without snow and ice.

Fantastic scenery!

Reminds me of my trip to Helsinki, Jyvaskyla and Rovaniemi in 2003. I also visited many of these places in Helsinki.

Quoting OHLHD (Thread starter):
A/C: A320

Seat: 2A

Economy Class in row 2? Btw - OH-LVE is an A319.

I can't stop to wonder about the catering differences between AY short-haul/medium-haul and long-haul routes...

Nothing's worse than flying the same reg twice!

The HEL-VIE is an all Economy flight. They just do not remove the Business Class plate on the wall. I realised the typo about the A319 just a little too late to correct it yesterday.  Smile

Amazing trip report! Sorry if I missed this but when did you go? I ask only cause I went to Helsinki late December last year and it didn't look nearly as cold as it does in your pictures!

Ironic too because I have the Sibelius sculpture as my desktop except there was no snow :P

I went at the end of March.  Smile I did not mention it btw.

I had a lot of luck to have a " real winter" as the snow has melted away at least twice during this winter.

Hi OHLHD,

Amazing pictures of what must be a true beautiful country.
I would love to go there, but I think my gf doesn't like it as she is already cold at + 15 dgrees. C.  Big grin
Also some nice flights and the meal you had looks really good, compared to what I have seen for Int. Cont. AY flights here on a.net.
Thanks fro sharing, and I'm looking forward to your next adventures!

Cheers,

Hyvää päivää!

Thanks for posting this interesting report - it's always nice to read about Finland. I'm just looking out the window at what a beautiful sunny day it is here and comparing it with your pics taken at -20C..........know which I prefer  Wink

Your meal certainly looked good on AY, they do seem to pride themselves on their inflight service.

Look forward to reading some more of your reports

Happy flying
